Is it possible to share internet connection from my Macbook to my desktop (wired of course)

 

 

I got a stubborn landlord who doesn't want to let me use LAN (wired connection) because he's to cheap tp buy the cat5 cable :S

 

I onlu got internet connectons via wifi on my macbook.

 

Heres what i want to do:

  1. Connect via wifi on macbook to my internet
  2. share the wifi connection from my macbook to the macbook LAN port
  3. run a cable (not sure if I need a cross over or straight from macbook to desktop LAN port
  4. use internet on desktop freely as if it was connected to a normal LAN cable

 

Notes:

Mac OSX 10.5.8

Desktop PC is a Windows 7

I use Little Snitch on mac and Zone Alarm on win 7

I guess i need to do configure firewall settings on both machines

Not really a Hackintosh question and the info you want is readily available from a google search

Anyway

To set up Internet sharing:

1-Choose Apple > System Preferences, and then click Sharing.

2-Select Internet Sharing.

3-Choose a network service from the “Share your connection from” pop-up menu.

4-Select a networking service to share your Internet connection from the “To computers using” list.

 

You shouldn't need a crossover cable, most Macs are smart enough to know they are not connected through a hub and can switch their network port accordingly
